Luke Perry is Back!

But it is not on 90210 ;) He is the father of Kelly's baby, so I am sure he will be coming back sooooon. He said 'no' in an interview, but money talks. But for those of us who can't wait, Luke will be guest starring in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as a foster parent suspected of child abuse and not as Kelly's love interest or baby daddy on the new 90210 . In addition to L&O Luke is guest starring as a polygamist cult leader on Criminal Minds . Law and Order returns with all-new episodes on September 23 at 10 p.m. on NBC. READ MORE HERE!

Here is a roundup of the notable TV show casting that has occurred today: 1. Michaela McManus, probably known to many as Lindsey on One Tree Hill has joined the cast of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as the new ADA.

Diane Neal Bails on Law & Order: SVU

Man, they're dropping like flies this week on the procedurals. Less than 24 hours after I reported that Gary Dourdan and CSI would be parting ways by season's end, word comes that Diane Neal has given notice at Law & Order: Special Victims Unit ! A show spokesperson confirmed the actress' departure, saying, "Diane spent five years on SVU and was a tremendous addition to the SVU team. She is looking forward to new opportunities and she will be missed." Neal, who will make her final appearance in next month's season finale, joined SVU in 2003 as ADA Casey Novak, replacing Stephanie March. She had previously appeared in a Season 3 episode as a different character, a female rapist by the name of Amelia Chase. The search for a new ADA is already under way, and, sadly, bringing March back doesn't appear to be an option. Word is that Dick Wolf is looking to fill the void with an up-and-comer. No disrespect to Neal, but, for my money, SVU is unlikely to ever find an ADA as arresting as Alex Cabot. Source: Ausiello Report, I don't know about anyone else but I am proper gutted!
